The Echo Show 5 usually costs $90, and on Prime Day 2020 we saw the device go down to as low as $45. Right now, you can buy the device for $75 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target, knocking $15 off its normal price.
Amazon’s Echo Show 8 provides a larger display and costs $40 more. It features an eight-inch display, making it a few inches bigger than the Echo Show 5.

Normally, this device costs $130, but it has seen some good price reductions in the past. We have seen the device go down as low as $65, but if you are ready to bite the bullet now, the Echo Show 8 is available for $105 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target right now.
